Real star threatens to fail: Use against City almost impossible
David Alaba will probably fail in the Champions League against Manchester City. The Star of Real Madrid has complaints in the Adductor area. After training on Sunday, the marca reports that the Austrian’s use is “almost impossible”.
“Alaba has the same problem as before the game against City,” said Carlo Ancelotti on Friday at the press conference before the 4-0 victory against Espanyol Barcelona: “We have to wait until Tuesday.” If the report of the Spanish sports newspaper is true, the Italian must probably fall back on Nacho Fernandez again.
Gareth Bale and Eden Hazard will also be missing. In contrast to the ex-Bavaria star, however, neither of them are part of the regular staff. There will only be final clarity about the personnel situation of the royal on Tuesday when the squad is announced.
Real Madrid secured the 35th championship in the Spanish Primera Division last weekend. Ancelotti thus became the first trainer in history to win the league in all five top European leagues.
